Whether you weren't able to attend, or your filing cabinet isn't quite as tidy as it should be, this page will provide you with any handouts, slides or resources from WICL events that we are able to share.
AGM - Committee Nominations
We will be holding our next AGM on 30th September 2020 at 6pm. This will be via Zoom and we will advertise all about how to register for the meeting details closer to the time. We hope that you will come and join us to reflect on another year of WICL - even if you aren't seeking a formal role in our organisation. All are welcome!
Part of the AGM process will be to review committee members new and old. If you would like to nominate yourself to be part of the WICL Committee 2020-2021, please do so here. Please provide a brief summary as to what you could offer the WICL Committee, why you would like to be involved and/or strengths or experiences you may have and/or any ideas we should consider!
We are welcoming nominations for across the committee which will include roles in the maternity team, the finance team, the race equality committee, the mentoring team, the policy team, the events team, the wellbeing team and the comms team. You are welcome to indicate if you have any particular strengths or experiences in these areas, but no promises can be made at this stage as to where we will have space for people (sorry!)
The deadline for nominations is 20th September 2020. Thereafter they will be reviewed by the current committee and we will be back in touch with all those who nominated themselves before 30th.
Thank you in advance for getting more involved in WICL - we really look forward to having new WICL-ers on board!
How to nail your appraisal
On Wednesday 21st November, WICL were kindly hosted at Norton Rose Fulbright for our 'how to nail your appraisal' evening. The event was presented by WICL members Pamela Reddy (Norton Rose Fulbright) and Tejal-Roma Williams (CPS) who delighted attendees with insightful tips and tricks on nailing your appraisal during preparation, the actual meeting and after the meeting - no we hadn't heard of a 'brag file' either...!
If you weren't able to attend, the ladies have kindly agreed for their slides to be shared here. We hope they are useful for your appraisal! Good luck! Let us know how you get on and consider seeking a WICL mentor for extra support.

WICL AGM - Minutes
Tuesday 1st May saw the Women in Criminal Law inaugural AGM.
The evening was a chance to review where we have got to since our launch and for members to give their input on where we are going next. After a spurring introduction from our founder, Katy Thorne QC, about the purpose of WICL and what drives its mission, (the support and encouragement of women across the criminal justice system, since you ask) accounts were reviewed and future events were considered.
Many thanks to the numerous women who put themselves forward for the WICL Committee. We are so excited to harness your energy and enthusiasm to maximise what our organisation can do! We know that with all your hands on deck we will continue to inspire and promote women across our profession.
If you have ideas and thoughts but weren't able to attend the AGM in person, we are all ears - firstname.lastname@example.org.
